    yes, it is ovbiously a new site design that just went live.

    We wanted PlowSite's look to mimic LawnSite and all of the other Moose River Media sites so that is why the look has changed :)

    powerjoke, Tim Wallace became a sponsor last week

    I am used to it. Lawnsite has been like it for awhile and I was wondering if they were going to switch this over.

    hey, you noticed that, huh ;)

    we will eventually have videos placed in there that are snow and ice related rather then having it linked to the LawnSite videos :nod:

    Relax Guys!!! I am not one who is big on change myself....but I have learned over time it won't take long to get accustomed to - I promise.

    The ads are there now but over time we are going to do our absolute best to make things easier to see and read.... for now, the functionality of the site as you know it has not changed and it will not change....it is still good ol' plowsite.

    I certainly welcome your input and what you think needs to change to improve. The goal is for all of the forums we have to basically look the same and have the same options, functions, look, etc...

    i neither like nor dislike it. theres just way too much going on and it makes finding things a little tougher. oh well it is what it is.

    moose river is monopolizing the net :eek:

    A heads up about the upcoming changes ahead of time here in the announcements forum would have been a nice gesture. :nod:

    I will admit that the new look is gonna take some getting used to.

    Just curious as to why Moose River Publishing would like all their sites to look the same. Will this be the case with all their print media as well?

    Hopefully I spell correctly, I'm a little :dizzy: after watching all the flashy things on top. :dizzy: :dizzy:

    Any chance we can get rid of the 240 second wait between PM's while we're at it?
